Watch the Webinar: Jennifer Seaman & Nicholas Hill discuss the new Practice Direction 57AC

Jennifer Seaman and Nicholas Hill recently provided a talk on the new Practice Direction 57AC and its Appendix, highlighting key features and discussing practical ways to ensure compliance with the Practice Direction and avoiding sanctions.

The new Practice Direction 57AC comes into force on 6 April 2021. It concerns witness statements for use at trials in the Business and Property Courts signed on or after 6 April 2021. It will involve a fundamental re-think to how such witness statements are produced.

Jennifer and Nick presented a virtual talk recently, aimed at helping commercial and private client practitioners get to grips with the new rules.
